So the factory GM hitch on my 06’ 2500HD was showing signs of wear. The pin hole was starting to wallow. Replaced it with a class V Draw Tite from Etrailer.com, as well as a new receiver from Fastway.

It pulls a lot nicer now.

No idea what the class was on the factory set up, I used a 10k Buyers Products from TSC with it, I sold that on FB.

Definitely won’t have to worry about the hitch being the weak link now!

Looks good, like the license plate colors.

PA railroad plate, they used to offer a few, look much better then the regular plates.

Looks good! I ordered and replaced the one on my '05. The day I saw a guy on the side of route 30 with a hitch that failed while pulling a landscape trailer, I knew it was time...

The goal was to avoid that! It was scale rusty, but structurally seemed ok, except for the wallow in the pin hole. Have seen a few failures. At 14 years and 230k miles, it was time.
